Actually, it's 2 Originals. 2 Originals of Led Zeppelin is the title.

The inside is Zep I and Zep II....I think It is German?, and was pulled immediately when Peter Grant found out Atlantic was pressing it. Yeah, it is expensive. I have had it for a long time. Maybe 20 years ago. I got it in a record shop, in freehold NJ. Think I paid around 40 bucks for it at the time. biggrin.gif

I have a tee shirt that Jimmy gave me, the 1977 United States tour shirt, sold to the public was white on black, a hand full of black on white ones were printed for the band and their family's, I was at Plumpton and Jimmy asked if I would like a copy of @The song Remains The Same', I said that I had it, although one of the records was damaged, he gave me a copy and signed it, he asked if there was anything else, I said no I was more than happy with the album, he said he knew something I would like, he went out of the room and when he returned he had a shirt in his hand, it was the shirt that he was wearing before he left the room, it was a black on white 1977 USA Tour shirt.

Show identified as 09-04-1970 Inglewood (blueberry hill) thanks to the plantation "who threw the firecracker, you want to be locked up, you should be locked up." Or something like that. There appears to be some printing on the label, it's almost completely gone.

Great to hear the unbridled geekiness of the above posts. Yes, material goods won't bring ultimate satisfaction, but by Jove, they do help pass the time. Sorry to hear about Rock Historian's loss of all that rare well-loved stuff. As Freddie sang, "carry on, carry on...".

Now, apart from my Classic Records 200 gram collection of all the Zep studio albums (literal audio orgasms in every weighty groove), my favourite item of LZ collection is the original sheet music book of ITTOD, which I found in a 2nd hand bookshop in Vancouver in 1994 for only CAN$12. I tried to remain calm when buying it cos I don't think they knew how rare it was. It's a lovely package with great photos, an essay and is bookended with two semi-transparent pages of each side of the inner sleeve. It was a great way to figure out chords and, especially, the lyrics of that album. Suddenly Carouselambra made sense!

Wow! I didn't know that the ITTOD sheet music book was considered a rare Zeppelin collectible- so if it is I'm glad too because I have one as well.

Almost impossible if there is nothing inscribed in the dead wax of those white label pressings. It looks like a mid to late 1980s knock off of a previously available Blueberry Hill title. Pressing a bootleg of a bootleg on vinyl with white labels with a cheap cover slick thrown in to jazz it up was a fairly common practice at the time.

The only thing that is inscribed in the dead wax is the matrix numbers and "BP". Since I only paid about $35 for it I am quite happy. A trip through the record cleaner and it should be good to go.

I love this one with the little cig hanging out of his mouth. Classic- don't ever sell it!!

It's awesome but they don't ever get his face quite right, do they? Here he looks like Ritchie Blackmore; in the other statues he looks like Joe Perry.

Up until my daughter bought me Led Zeppelin tea mug and fabric wall hanging with the lyrics to STH and the bloke with the lamp ( which has never been hung) I had'nt had anything. I'm not one for for memoribillia. The Music is enough for me.
